The development and structure of the chimpanzee mandible. (1/1613)

The sites of growth and remodeling, and the associated changes in cortical bone structure, have been studied in the chimpanzee mandible and compared with those previously reported in the human and macaque mandibles. The location of the principal sites of growth, and the distribution of the areas of deposition and resorption in the ramus, were found to be similar in all three species. In the chimpanzee, unlike Man, the bone being deposited at the condyle, posterior border of the ramus and coronoid process was plexiform in nature, indicating very rapid growth. The pattern of remodeling in the mandibular body, on the other hand, showed marked species differences at the chin and on the submandibular lingual surface, which account for the contrasts seen in the adult morphology of these regions. Although the pattern of distribution of cortical densities differed from that of surface remodeling, the information they give is complementary in analysing bone growth. The densest regions were found to coincide with sites of consistent lamellar deposition, while the least dense regions were those where plexiform bone was formed. Areas where remodeling led to the greatest reorientation of bone tissue within the cortex showed the greatest disparity between the two patterns.  (+info)

Expression of the paired-box genes Pax-1 and Pax-9 in limb skeleton development. (2/1613)

Vertebrate Pax genes encode a family of transcription factors that play important roles in embryonic patterning and morphogenesis. Two closely related Pax genes, Pax-1 and Pax-9, are associated with early axial and limb skeleton development. To investigate the role of these genes in cartilage formation we have examined the expression profiles of Pax-1 and Pax-9 in developing chick limb mesenchyme in vivo and in vitro. Both transcripts are detected by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction and Northern blotting throughout chick limb development, from the early bud stages (Hamburger-Hamilton 20-23) to fully patterned appendages (stage 30). Whole-mount in situ hybridization reveals complex, nonoverlapping expression domains of these two genes. Pax-1 transcripts first appear at the anterior proximal margin of the limb buds, while Pax-9 is expressed more distally at what will be the junction of the autopod and the zeugopod. In situ hybridization to serial sections of the girdles reveals that in the pectoral region Pax-1 is expressed proximally in condensed mesenchyme surrounding the junction of the developing scapula, humerus, and coracoid. In the pelvis, Pax-1 is expressed between the femur and the developing acetabulum and along the ventral edge of the ischium; this transcript was also found in the distal hindlimb along the posterior edge of the fibula. Pax-9 transcripts were not detected in the pectoral girdle at any stage, and only weakly in the pelvis along the ventral ischial margin. In the distal parts of both wings and legs, however, Pax-9 is strongly expressed between the anterior embryonic cartilages (e.g., distal radius or tibia) and the anterior ectodermal ridge. The expression of both genes was strongest in undifferentiated cells of precartilage condensations or at the margins of differentiated cartilages, and was absent from cartilage itself. In micromass cultures of chondrifying limb bud mesenchyme expression of Pax-1 and Pax-9 is maintained for up to 3 days in vitro, most strongly at the end of the culture period during chondrogenic differentiation. As seen in vivo, transcripts are found in loose mesenchyme cells at the outer margins of developing cartilage nodules, and are absent from differentiated chondrocytes at the nodule center. Taken together, these investigations extend previous studies of Pax-1 and Pax-9 expression in embryonic limb development while validating limb bud mesenchyme culture as an accessible experimental system for the study of Pax gene function and regulation. Our in vivo and in vitro observations are discussed with reference to 1) the relationship between somitic and limb expression of these two Pax genes, 2) what regulates this expression in different regions of the embryo, and 3) the putative cellular functions of Pax-1 and Pax-9 in embryonic skeletogenesis.  (+info)

An endocytic pathway essential for renal uptake and activation of the steroid 25-(OH) vitamin D3. (3/1613)

Steroid hormones may enter cells by diffusion through the plasma membrane. However, we demonstrate here that some steroid hormones are taken up by receptor-mediated endocytosis of steroid-carrier complexes. We show that 25-(OH) vitamin D3 in complex with its plasma carrier, the vitamin D-binding protein, is filtered through the glomerulus and reabsorbed in the proximal tubules by the endocytic receptor megalin. Endocytosis is required to preserve 25-(OH) vitamin D3 and to deliver to the cells the precursor for generation of 1,25-(OH)2 vitamin D3, a regulator of the calcium metabolism. Megalin-/- mice are unable to retrieve the steroid from the glomerular filtrate and develop vitamin D deficiency and bone disease.  (+info)

Pleiotropic skeletal and ocular phenotypes of the mouse mutation congenital hydrocephalus (ch/Mf1) arise from a winged helix/forkhead transcriptionfactor gene. (4/1613)

Congenital hydrocephalus is an etiologically diverse, poorly understood, but relatively common birth defect. Most human cases are sporadic with familial forms showing considerable phenotypic and etiologic heterogeneity. We have studied the autosomal recessive mouse mutation congenital hydrocephalus ( ch ) to identify candidate human hydrocephalus genes and their modifiers. ch mice have a congenital, lethal hydrocephalus in association with multiple developmental defects, notably skeletal defects, in tissues derived from the cephalic neural crest. We utilized positional cloning methods to map ch in the vicinity of D13Mit294 and confirm that the ch phenotype is caused by homozygosity for a nonsense mutation in a gene encoding a winged helix/forkhead transcription factor ( Mf1 ). Based on linked genetic markers, we performed detailed phenotypic characterization of mutant homozygotes and heterozygotes to demonstrate the pleiotropic effects of the mutant gene. Surprisingly, ch heterozygotes have the glaucoma-related distinct phenotype of multiple anterior segment defects resembling Axenfeld-Rieger anomaly. We also localized a second member of this gene family ( Hfh1 ), a candidate for other developmental defects, approximately 470 kb proximal to Mf1.  (+info)

Spatial and temporal variations in the expression and secretion of the various growth factors have been demonstrated in osteoblastic cultures and in various experimental and clinical in vivo models, including fracture healing in humans. Local application of various growth factors influences proliferation, differentiation and protein synthesis in osteoblastic cultures and bone formation in different animal models, including experimental fractures and skeletal defects. The BMPs are the only growth factors known to provoke bone formation heterotopically by making undifferentiated mesenchymal cells differentiate into osteoblasts (osteoinduction). BMPs and other growth factors, soon to become commercially available for clinical use, need a delivery system for their sustained release, as the factors are otherwise rapidly absorbed. Some existing systems inhibit bone formation by inducing chronic inflammation or physically by unresorbed carrier obstructing bone formation. New delivery systems are being investigated.  (+info)

Tumor necrosis factor receptor family member RANK mediates osteoclast differentiation and activation induced by osteoprotegerin ligand. (6/1613)

A receptor that mediates osteoprotegerin ligand (OPGL)-induced osteoclast differentiation and activation has been identified via genomic analysis of a primary osteoclast precursor cell cDNA library and is identical to the tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) family member RANK. The RANK mRNA was highly expressed by isolated bone marrow-derived osteoclast progenitors and by mature osteoclasts in vivo. Recombinant OPGL binds specifically to RANK expressed by transfected cell lines and purified osteoclast progenitors. Transgenic mice expressing a soluble RANK-Fc fusion protein have severe osteopetrosis because of a reduction in osteoclasts, similar to OPG transgenic mice. Recombinant RANK-Fc binds with high affinity to OPGL in vitro and blocks osteoclast differentiation and activation in vitro and in vivo. Furthermore, polyclonal Ab against the RANK extracellular domain promotes osteoclastogenesis in bone marrow cultures suggesting that RANK activation mediates the effects of OPGL on the osteoclast pathway. These data indicate that OPGL-induced osteoclastogenesis is directly mediated through RANK on osteoclast precursor cells.  (+info)

Retardation of bone growth in triamcinolone-treated mice. (7/1613)

Immature mice were treated for up to 8 weeks with daily doses of triamcinolone diacetate. The epiphyseal cartilage plate and its surrounding bone from the humeral head were studied histologically at regular intervals. Concomitantly, roentgenographic measurements were performed on the humeri in toto. By the tenth injection significant morphological changes were noted in the cartilaginous plate, followed by complete cessation of bone growth. Severe triglyceride accumulation appeared in the experimental livers and humeral bone marrow. Osteoporosis also occurred and became severe from the fifth week of triamcinolone administration. Possible explanations for the above findings are discussed.  (+info)

Quantitative histology of the human growth plate. (8/1613)

This paper describes a study in the human femur of the relationship between cell division in growth cartilage and overall bone growth. Growth rates for the distal femur from birth to eighteen years were determined from serial radiographs available from the Harpenden Growth Study; An average of 1-4 cm/year was found for the ages of five to eight years. The development of the growth plate is illustrated in a series of photomicrographs of femur sections. These sections were also used for quantitative histology; The length of the proliferation zone was estimated from cell counts to be twenty-four cells per column. On the basis of this value and the measured growth rate, an approximate mean cycle time of twenty days was found for the proliferating cells of the human growth plate. Since the corresponding cycle time is two days for rodent growth plates, which also have a different structure, it is unwise to extrapolate the findings in this tissue from mouse to man.  (+info)

Protein, consisting of 22 amino acids, happens to be the basic building component for the muscles, skin, nails and hair. Intake of protein is essential for hormone and enzyme formation. Carbohydrate acts as the principal source of energy for the proper functioning of the body and muscles. It modulates fat and protein metabolism. Minerals aid in keeping up the water balance of the body. It also helps in bone development and hormone production. Water assists in maintaining a static temperature of the body ...
Bone is much more than a simple, static organ. While its classical functions of mineral storage, organ protection, and locomotion still hold true, further studies into the skeleton have revealed a dynamic system capable of signaling, communication, remodeling, and responding to various stimuli. Overall skeletal health is critically important to maintaining high quality of life. Unfortunately, the skeleton is susceptible to various ailments such as fracture, cancer, and deterioration. Decreased bone mass and structural deterioration may lead to the silent disease of osteoporosis. With limited treatment options, focus has been shifted to prevention. The best method of osteoporosis prevention is to maximize peak bone mass during development. Nutrition plays an important role in developmental bone health and one nutrient is synonymous with skeletal health: milk. Supplying biologically relevant levels of bone specific nutrients, along with various bioactive compounds, milk should be natures perfect ...
Our adult skeleton forms from a larger number of developmental elements that are replaced and fuse. In development there are 2 separate signaling pathways for pattern formation and the formation of bone itself. Furthermore bone formation can be divided into 2 specific forms that occur in anatomically different regions.

Researchers from the Universities of Birmingham and Oxford, funded by the NC3Rs, have developed a new self-structuring model of bone tissue in vitro that can be used instead of experiments on live animals to study bone formation and maturation (ossification). The model is described in a publication in Advanced Biosystems. Cells at the surface of constructs imaged using scanned electron microscopy. (Iordachescu et al. 2017) The process of ossification is studied to understand normal bone development and repair as well as bone disorders. Current animal models of ossification often involve the use of genetically altered mice that are prone to pathological mineralisation. Depending on the experiment, bone fractures may have to be introduced. Differences in bone metabolism and volumes of bone formation between species can mean that mouse models generally provide a limited approximation of ossification in humans. In addition, differences in protocols and inducing agents (such as osteogenic factors or
The potential effects of introducing bone regeneration strategies into environments of disease and damage are often overlooked, despite the fact that many of the signalling pathways in inflammation have effects on bone development and healing. Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are increasingly being used to develop models of disease and have potential in osteogenic-cell based therapies. Osteogenic differentiation strategies for ESCs are well established, but the response of these cells to tissue damage and inflammation has not yet been investigated, particularly in comparison to primary osteoblasts. Here, proinflammatory cytokines were used as part of an in vitro model to mimic elements of skeletal disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis and non-union fractures. The response of osteogenically differentiated mouse embryonic stem cells (osteo-mESCs) to the proinflammatory cytokines interleukin 1-β (IL-1β), tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and interferon-γ (IFN-γ), was compared to that of primary ...
[email protected] Supervsiors: Peter Bisschop, Anita Boelen, Andries Kalsbeek & Eric Fliers. Thyroid hormone is essential for normal bone development and maintenance of bone mass in adulthood. Hypothyroidism during childhood causes growth retardation, delayed bone age and short stature, whereas hyperthyroidism accelerates skeletal development and also results in short stature due to premature closure of the growth plates. In adults, hyperthyroidism increases bone resorption and bone formation leading to high bone turnover osteoporosis and associated increased fracture risk.. Apart from the classic Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Thyroid gland (HPT) axis pathway for the effects of thyroid hormone on bone, in the literature there is also evidence of regulation of bone metabolism via the autonomic nervous system, especially its sympathetic branch. Previous work in our group has shown that triiodothyronine (T3) in the brain can modulate glucose production through a sympathetic pathway. Accordingly, we ...

Leg bone pathologies are a common problem in broiler chickens, and they can lead to decreased welfare and poor production performance. It can be speculated that the ae-tiology of some leg bone pathologies lies, to some extent, in suboptimal early life bone development. One factor that can be speculated to affect bone development, and conse-quently leg health, in broiler chickens is application of light. Light has several properties, such as light intensity, color, duration, and schedule. The present thesis focuses on ligh-ting schedules. Aim was to investigate how lighting schedules applied during incubation and in the early post hatch period (the brooding period) affected leg bone development throughout a broilers life and leg health at slaughter age.. In 4 studies, effects of eggshell temperature (EST) and lighting schedule during incuba-tion and in the brooding period on leg bone development, leg health, and production parameters were explored. The first study found that an EST of 39.4°C ...

Long, short, and irregular bones develop by endochondral ossification, where cartilage is replaced by bone. Flat bones develop by intramembranous ossification, where bone develops within sheets of connective tissue. Compact cortical bone, representing about 80 percent of the mature skeleton, supports the body, and features extra thickness at the midpoint in long bones to prevent the bones from bending. Cancellous bone, whose porous structure with small cavities resembles sponge, predominates in the pelvis and the 33 vertebrae from the neck to the tailbone. Bone growth is more complicated than simple elongation or simple enlargement. Most long bones add width on the outside by a process referred to as subperiosteal apposition (layers added to those already existing), while losing bone on the inside by endosteal resorption (breaking down and reabsorbing material at the center of a mass). At the same time, long bones gain in length by adding to the epiphyseal plate (the surface at the end of the ...

N2 - Osteoblasts and chondrocytes produce a large number of extracellular matrix proteins to generate and maintain the skeletal system. To cope with their functions as secretory cells, these cells must acquire a considerable capacity for protein synthesis and also the machinery for the quality-control and transport of newly synthesized secreted proteins. The unfolded protein response (UPR) plays a crucial role during the differentiation of these cells to achieve this goal. Unexpectedly, however, studies in the past several years have revealed that the UPR has more extensive functions in skeletal development than was initially assumed, and the UPR critically orchestrates many facets of skeletal development and homeostasis. This review focuses on recent findings on the functions of the UPR in the differentiation ...

I do hope that issues with bone development were looked into. However... I have a feeling that they were not. We have seen cases of abuse that were not abuse. Weve seen families torn apart and even suicides from these cases. Hopefully the family is able to get those things ruled out. The older comments on this article are from family/friends. The story they tell makes more sense to me than the way the article tells it.
When pregnant (whether youre eating healthy or not) your foetus is drawing whatever nutrients it needs from your body stores. You both share a similar blood environment. So you cant eat whatever you want including health damaging foods and expect a healthy baby. Not only will you suffer from nutrient deficiencies, your baby will have to adjust to a nutritionally substandard rather than a nutrient - rich environment which may have unwanted consequences too like inferior brain and bone development. ...

This study presents unique longitudinal data on skeletal maturation in adolescents from a middle-income country. Moreover, the study provides mean growth curves for RUS bone scores which permit the analysis of sex and ethnic differences in patterns of skeletal maturation. The results show that black boys mature later than white boys whereas black as well as white girls mature at the same age. A longitudinal analysis clarifies how this pattern emerges; skeletal maturation in black girls starts to accelerate later than in white girls, but develops faster, whereas in black boys, skeletal maturation starts to accelerate later and then develops at a similar rate.. The differing patterns of skeletal maturity in the two ethnic groups by sex are intriguing. In all populations, girls are more skeletally mature than boys from birth onwards and reach adult bone maturity, on average, 2 years earlier than boys (1.9 years here).2 Similarly, lower socioeconomic status is generally associated with delayed bone ...
To evaluate the effects of Huang Bai (Phellodendron amurense) on growth and maturation in adolescent female rats. Female Sprague-Dawley rats (28 days old; n = 72) were divided into six daily treatment groups: control (distilled water), Huang Bai (100 and 300 mg/kg), recombinant human GH (rhGH; 20 μg/kg), estradiol (1 μg/kg), and triptorelin (100 μg). Body weight, food intake, and vaginal opening were measured daily from postnatal day (PND) 28 to PND 43. Tetracycline (20 mg/kg) was injected on PND 41. After sacrifice on PND 43, the ovaries and uterus were weighed, and the tibias were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde. Decalcified and dehydrated tibias were sectioned at a thickness of 40 μm, and sectioned tissues were examined with a fluorescence microscope. Insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1 and bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2 were detected using immunohistochemistry. Relative to controls, body weight was higher in the triptorelin group. Bone growth rate increased in the Huang Bai 100 mg/kg (354.00 ±
The study was aimed to evaluate the effect of Biofield Energy Treated vitamin D|sub|3|/sub| and DMEM medium on bone health parameters such as ALP, collagen, and bone mineralization in human bone osteosarcoma cells (MG-63). The test items (TI), were divided into two parts. One part of each sample received the Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment by Haddon Norman Salt and those samples were labeled as the Biofield Energy Treated (BT) samples, while the other parts of each sample were denoted as the untreated test items (UT). The cell viability by MTT assay data showed that the test samples were found as safe in the tested concentrations. The level of ALP was significantly increased by 73.24% and 85.41% in the UT-DMEM + BT-Test TI and BT-DMEM + BT-TI, respectively at 10 µg/mL compared to the UT-DMEM + UT-TI group. Further, ALP level was significantly elevated by 76.71% in the BT-DMEM + UT-TI group at 0.1 µg/mL compared to the untreated. Collagen was significantly increased by 77%, 113.53%, and 98.00%
We saw a decrease in the level of sclerostin in both of these exercise interventions in men, Hinton said. When sclerostin is expressed at high levels, it has a negative impact on bone formation. In both resistance and jump training, the level of sclerostin in the bone goes down, which triggers bone formation.. The other significant change Hinton observed was an increase in the hormone IGF-1. Unlike sclerostin, IGF-1 triggers bone growth. The decrease of harmful sclerostin levels and the increase in beneficial IGF-1 levels confirmed Hintons prior research that found both resistance training and jump training have beneficial effects on bone growth.. To increase bone mass and prevent osteoporosis, Hinton recommends exercising specifically to target bone health. While exercises such as swimming and cycling are beneficial to overall health, these activities do not strengthen the skeleton. Hinton suggests also doing exercise targeted for bone health, such as resistance training and jump ...
Postnatal bone growth involves a dramatic increase in length and girth. Intriguingly, this period of growth is independent of growth hormone and the underlying mechanism is poorly understood. Recently, an IGF2 mutation was identified in humans with early postnatal growth restriction. Here, we show that IGF2 is essential for longitudinal and appositional murine postnatal bone development, which involves proper timing of chondrocyte maturation and perichondrial cell differentiation and survival. Importantly, the Igf2 null mouse model does not represent a simple delay of growth but instead uncoordinated growth plate development. Furthermore, biochemical and two-photon imaging analyses identified elevated and imbalanced glucose metabolism in the Igf2 null mouse. Attenuation of glycolysis rescued the mutant phenotype of premature cartilage maturation, thereby indicating that IGF2 controls bone growth by regulating glucose metabolism in chondrocytes. This work links glucose metabolism with cartilage ...
Question: My child doesnt drink as much milk as he used to. Do you think hes still getting enough vitamin D?. Answer: This is a really common question for children about a year or two of age and older. Some will go from breastfeeding frequently or drinking up to 32 ounces a day of vitamin-enriched formula to drinking virtually no milk at all-sometimes within days or weeks. While the loss of protein and calcium supply is of concern in these kids, its really the loss of nutritional vitamin D supply that worries me most. There are other ways to get protein and calories-and even calcium-but vitamin D deficiency is epidemic among children and hard to find in other food sources.. Whats so important about vitamin D? In addition to its impact on bone development and growth, this crucial nutrient has important immune- regulating and neurological roles. Children deficient in vitamin D are more likely to suffer from respiratory ailments like asthma and may be at increased risk for certain types of ...
Risk Summary Available data from published observational studies did not demonstrate an association of major malformations or other adverse pregnancy outcomes with pantoprazole. In animal reproduction studies, no evidence of adverse development outcomes was observed with pantoprazole. Reproduction studies have been performed in rats at oral doses up to 450 mg/kg/day (about 88 times the recommended human dose) and rabbits at oral doses up to 40 mg/kg/day (about 16 times the recommended human dose) with administration of pantoprazole during organogenesis in pregnant animals and have revealed no evidence of harm to the fetus due to pantoprazole in this study (see Data). A pre- and postnatal development toxicity study in rats with additional endpoints to evaluate the effect on bone development was performed with pantoprazole sodium. Oral pantoprazole doses of 5, 15, and 30 mg/kg/day (approximately 1, 3, and 6 times the human dose of 40 mg/day) were administered to pregnant females from gestation day ...

However, it remains unknown how this supply is maintained throughout childhood growth. Chondroprogenitors in the resting zone are thought to be gradually consumed as they supply cells for longitudinal growth1,2, but this model has never been proved. Here, using clonal genetic tracing with multicolour reporters and functional perturbations, we demonstrate that longitudinal growth during the fetal and neonatal periods involves depletion of chondroprogenitors, whereas later in ...
Bone development is exquisitely controlled in space and period. versions. As our earlier work shows that gain of function mutations upregulate WNT/-Catenin signaling in fibrous dysplasia Csf2 (FD), our results determine Gs as a crucial regulator of osteoblast differentiation by keeping an equilibrium between two essential signaling pathways: Wnt/-catenin and Hh. HH signaling inhibitors created for tumor therapy could be repurposed to take care of HO and additional diseases due to inactivation. The human being skeleton can be a complex body organ that forms during embryogenesis, expands during years as a child, remodels throughout adult existence, and regenerates pursuing damage. The spatial limitations of its temporal lifestyle are exquisitely controlled.

The growth plate, which is also known by the name of epiphyseal plate, is an area of growing tissues along the end of the long bones in a child. The growth plate determines how the length and shape of the bone will be once the child attains puberty. Normally, the growth plate closes once the child has attained puberty. Thus for females, the normal age at which time the growth plate should close is between 12-14 years and for males it is between 14-16 years.

Researchers have long known that the shape, or geometry, of cells influences what goes on inside a cell. The wrong shape can prevent proteins from being produced, promote cell death (apoptosis), or lead to tumors. In the new study, Kevin E. Healy, of the University of California, Berkeley, and colleagues refine this concept. They show that certain changes in gene and protein expression are related not only to cell shape but, more precisely, to the shape of the cell nucleus. The researchers arrayed rat cells derived from bone tissue on glass slides containing 12,000 binding domains or islands. Each cell adopts the shape of a binding island, a process that also affects the shape of the nucleus. The researchers then manipulated the cells, creating a range of geometric shapes and sizes, and monitored the development of the cells over time. Different nuclear shapes were associated with significant changes in the expression of certain genes related to bone development, according to findings ...

  • Precursor cells treated with bone morphogenetic protein seven (BMP7) in vitro developed into brown adipose tissue, according to Yu-Hua Tseng, Ph.D., of the Joslin Diabetes Center, and colleagues. (
  • Researchers from ETH Zurich have successfully demonstrated, for the first time in vivo, how bone tissue responds to local mechanical stimuli that control bone formation. (
  • Here, the 3D simulation depicts the stress on the bone tissue, calculated on the basis of CT images. (
  • Endochondral bones form from cartilaginous tissue, which ossifies in the course of the development. (
  • During craniofacial development, the Hedgehog (HH) signaling pathway is essential for mesodermal tissue patterning and differentiation. (
  • Injectable bone implants have been widely used in bone tissue repairs, including the treatment of comminuted bone fractures (CBF). (
  • However, most injectable bone implants are not suitable for the treatment of CBF because of their weak tissue adhesion strengths and minimal osteoinduction. (
  • The severe phenotype of homozygous mutants and the expression of cilia on most cells throughout the body have complicated research directed at understanding the function of cilia on specific cell types or during distinct stages of development, as well as their role in normal tissue function in postnatal life. (
  • With the promising advances in the development of spatially offset Raman spectroscopy for deep tissue measurement, this spectral marker can potentially be used for future noninvasive evaluation of metastatic bone and prediction of pathological fracture risk. (
  • There are specific cells that break down existing bone and others that build new tissue. (
  • Various hormones regulate the creation and destruction of bone tissue and also how much bone is allowed to grow at any given time. (
  • Bone tissue is constantly being remodeled to better suit the body's needs due to the actions of osteoblasts, which are bone-building cells, and osteoclasts, which break down existing bone. (
  • Interstitial growth produces longer bones as the cartilage lengthens and is replaced by bone tissue, while appositional growth occurs when new bone tissue is deposited on the surface of the bone, resulting in bone thickening. (
  • A.J. Salgado, O.P. Coutinho, R.L. Reis, Bone tissue engineering: state of the art and future trends. (
  • In girls, the bone tissue accumulated during the ages of 11 to 13 approximately equals the amount lost during the 30 years following menopause. (
  • During growth the gain in bone mineral mass is mainly due to an increase in bone size with very little change in bone density, i.e. in the amount of bone tissue within the bones. (
  • Bone tissue represents a complex ecosystem comprising of multiple cell types and extracellular matrix which interact with each other at certain points in time and space. (
  • ECM proteins, including collagens and proteoglycans, play an important role in the appropriate development of bone and skeletal tissue, ensuring strength and functionality. (
  • The bone is formed from a specific type of connective tissue called mesenchyme connective tissue . (
  • Advanced techniques for the assessment of bone quality in bone biopsies, which have emerged during the last decades, allows in-depth tissue analyses beyond structural changes visible in bone histology. (
  • The evaluation of rare metabolic bone disorders requires a repertoire of different methods, owing to their distinct bone tissue characteristics. (
  • Around 1950, modern embedding techniques were discovered for the microscopic examination of mineralized bone tissue ( 3 ). (
  • Moreover, ideal scaffolds should be able to integrate into surrounding tissue and mimic the structure and morphology of the natural bone tissue. (
  • Some bones (especially those of the skull) develop in sheets of connective tissue. (
  • Bone tissue continuously adapts to changes in mechanical load. (
  • This will allow the accurate three-dimensional measurement of bone tissue morphometry changes over time due to the intervention under investigation in the same region of the skeleton of the same animal. (
  • The Wnt pathway constitutes one of the most attractive candidates for modulating skeletal tissue regeneration based on its functions during skeletal development and homeostasis. (
  • Abstract: Osseous tissue can be formed by culturing marrow cells with compounds such as dexamethasone and that a bone matrix cultured in this manner possesses BMP activity. (
  • We have reported that artificial bones with a high level of osteogenic potential can be prepared by culturing artificial bone materials with cultured osseous tissue. (
  • Home Key Engineering Materials Bioceramics 28 Development of a Synthetic Tissue Engineered 3D. (
  • Over the last decade there have been increasing efforts to develop adequate 3D scaffolds for bone tissue engineering from bioactive ceramics with 3D printing emerging as a promising technology. (
  • The overall objective of the present study was to generate a tissue engineered synthetic bone graft with homogenously distributed osteoblasts and mineralizing bone matrix in vitro , thereby mimicking the advantageous properties of autogenous bone grafts and facilitating usage for reconstructing segmental discontinuity defects in vivo . (
  • In conclusion, RPS displayed superior mechanical and biological properties and facilitated generating a tissue engineered synthetic bone graft in vitro , which mimics the advantageous properties of autogenous bone grafts, by containing homogenously distributed terminally differentiated osteoblasts and mineralizing bone matrix and therefore is suitable for subsequent in vivo implantation for regenerating segmental discontinuity bone defects. (
  • The tissue pathological features of metabolic bone disease. (
  • Taurine contents are believed to be high in bone tissue mostly due to accumulation by transport, as taurine synthesis in bone is yet to be recorded. (
  • Originally discovered by their ability to induce the formation of bone and cartilage, BMPs are now considered to constitute a group of pivotal morphogenetic signals, orchestrating tissue architecture throughout the body. (
  • The simulations reveal how the mechanical strain exerted locally in the lab - by stretching a vertebral body in a mouse tail - leads to the build-up of the bone substance in certain places and its resorption elsewhere. (
  • The resulting lack of oestrogen has a negative impact on bone formation and leads to bone resorption - presumably one of the reasons why around thirty per cent of women develop osteoporosis after the menopause. (
  • The red areas represent high mechanical stress and bone formation while the blue ones represent low stress and bone resorption. (
  • Superimposed and processed into three-dimensional representations using imaging processing, the images produced spatial models displaying the areas of bone formation, bone resorption and areas where nothing had changed. (
  • High local strains lead to the formation of the bone and low strains provoke its resorption. (
  • Moreover, bone resorption appears to be controlled mechanically to a considerably higher degree than bone formation, especially in mice without ovaries, where non-specific bone resorption increases significantly in the absence of mechanical strain. (
  • In short: a lack of oestrogen receptors limits targeted bone resorption. (
  • The RANK/RANKL interaction is predominantly responsible for the extensive bone resorption by the tumour. (
  • The Bone Development Pathway has been researched in relation to Ossification, Osteoblast Differentiation, Endochondral Ossification, Bone Resorption, Regeneration. (
  • Osteoclasts are responsible for bone resorption in normal and disease conditions. (
  • The design of osseous implants, either load bearing or not, with desired mechanical and surface features that promote integration with bone and avoid risks of bone resorption and implant failure due to shear stresses, is still a challenging endeavour. (
  • The mechanical stresses which the skeleton undergoes affect bone formation and resorption processes. (
  • 5) Further deposition of new bone and resorption lead to a remodelling which ultimately produces a mature osteophyte having a trabecular bone structure and free communication with the bone marrow spaces of the femur. (
  • We will develop new computational models capable of predicting the extent and anatomical location of bone formation and/or resorption following bone anabolic interventions. (
  • Bisphosphonates are strongly efficacious in inhibiting osteoclast bone resorption and have beneficial effects on bone metastasis. (
  • together with this, inhibition of bone resorption and osteoclast formation by taurine has also been identified, making taurine an agent for preventing inflammatory bone resorption in periodontal diseases. (
  • This was accompanied by a respective decrease and increase in the number of active osteoclasts and osteoblasts at the tumor-bone interface, without any effect on tumor proliferation. (
  • A well-balanced interplay between osteoblasts, which are responsible for bone formation, and osteoclasts, which resorb and break down bones, is important for a healthy organism. (
  • It includes two principal mechanisms of bone growth: growth in length of long bones at the epiphyseal cartilages and growth in thickness by depositing new bone (OSTEOGENESIS) with the actions of OSTEOBLASTS and OSTEOCLASTS. (
  • Combined deletion of Sik2 and Sik3 in osteoblasts and osteocytes led to a dramatic increase in bone mass that closely resembled the skeletal and molecular phenotypes observed when these bone cells express a constitutively active PTH1R that causes Jansen's metaphyseal chondrodysplasia. (
  • Longitudinal bone growth before and after birth takes place in the growth plate located at the epiphyses of long bones via an endochondral ossification process in which a hypertrophic cartilage template is made, calcified, and invaded by blood vessels and then converted to trabecular bone through the action of bone forming cells, osteoblasts, and bone resorbing cells, osteoclasts [ 1 ]. (
  • Mesenchymal cells condense to form sponge-like structures (A) and differentiate into osteoprogenitors and osteoblasts, which secrete ECM and form ossification centers and, ultimately, fully differentiated osteocytes (B). Matrix proteins and pro-angiogenic factors generated by the ossification centers then attract blood vessels (C). The subsequent vascularization of the developing flat bone promotes osteogenesis (D). (
  • During bone formation, hypertropic chondrocytes (HCs) and osteoblasts/osteoprogenitors (Osb/Osp, brown) are in a hypoxic environment. (
  • There are three primary types of bone cells -osteoblasts, osteoclasts, and osteocytes-all of which arise from generic stem cells. (
  • In both mechanisms, osteoblasts play an important role in the secretion and mineralization of bone-specific extracellular matrix. (
  • Differentiation and maturation of osteoblasts is a prerequisite to bone formation and is regulated by many factors. (
  • Less is known, however, about the protein changes associated with mesenchymal differentiation into bone-forming osteoblasts. (
  • Osteoblasts are cells which originate in the bone marrow and contribute to the production of new bone. (
  • Bone is constantly being built up and broken down by the body, making osteoblasts rather critical. (
  • We hypothesized that thyrostimulin exerts paracrine actions in bone and determined: 1) GPA2 and GPB5 expression in osteoblasts and osteoclasts, 2) the skeletal consequences of thyrostimulin deficiency in GPB5 knockout (KO) mice, and 3) osteoblast and osteoclast responses to thyrostimulin treatment. (
  • However, thyrostimulin failed to induce a canonical cAMP response or activate the noncanonical Akt, ERK, or mitogen-activated protein kinase (P38) signaling pathways in primary calvarial or bone marrow stromal cell-derived osteoblasts. (
  • Techniques Used For Human Skeletal Development Of Bone And. (
  • This shows skull and skeletal development of a 25-year-old musk shrew embryo. (
  • In this paper, we discuss the structure of T-cell factor/lymphoid enhancer factor (TCF/LEF) and its role in embryonic skeletal development and the crosstalk with related signaling pathways and factors. (
  • 2014) recently showed that, proteomically, zebrafish skeletal development is comparable with other vertebrates, thus confirming it as an ideal model organism for studying chondral and intramembranous ossification. (
  • As an experimental model of choice for skeletal development, zebrafish are well studied, showing molecular and biological similarities to humans. (
  • These included structural proteins such as collagen, in addition to those involved in the regulation of skeletal development, such as insulin-like growth factor binding protein 5 (IGFBP-5). (
  • Moreover, the scientists found 6 novel proteins not previously associated with vertebrate osteogenesis and 52 whose role at the protein level in zebrafish skeletal development constituted a new finding. (
  • In their presentation and discussion of proteins identified, the researchers show that their data demonstrate the role of the ECM proteome in the skeletal development of zebrafish. (
  • comment on the similarity between the zebrafish E CM proteome and that of other vertebrates, suggesting that their data will be valuable in future skeletal development studies. (
  • Indeed, the researchers showed that deactivating interleukin-1 activity in the brain of laboratory mice paralyzes parasympathetic activity in the bone and slows down skeletal development. (
  • These studies identify thyrostimulin as a negative but indirect regulator of osteoblastic bone formation during skeletal development. (
  • Arachnomelia is a monogenic recessive defect of skeletal development in cattle. (
  • The accrual of bone mass during puberty is a major determinant of peak bone mass and, thereby, of the risk of osteoporotic fractures during advanced age. (
  • While optimal bone growth achieved during childhood is critical both for ensuring optimal development and protection from fractures during childhood, evidence is growing that peak bone mass is also an important contributor to bone mass and strength in later life [ 4 ]. (
  • Peak bone mass is a predictor of the age of onset of osteoporosis and a determinant of osteoporotic fracture risk in the elderly [ 5 - 8 ], a skeletal disorder associated with a progressive decrease in bone mineral density (BMD) and an increase in bone fragility and susceptibility to fractures. (
  • In fact, it's estimated a 10% increase of peak bone mass in all children reduces the risk of an osteoporotic fracture during adult life by 50 % . (
  • Excessive skinniness in adolescence leads to a low peak bone mass. (
  • Matkovic V , Jelic T , Wardlaw GM , Ilich JZ , Goel PK , Wright JK , Andon MB , Smith KT , Heaney RP 1994 Timing of peak bone mass in Caucasian females and its implication for the prevention of osteoporosis. (
  • The female and male patients showed significantly improved mean lumbar spine BMD Z-scores during follow-up into young adulthood, indicating that bone accumulation in the lumbar spine continues beyond the expected age for achieving peak bone mass. (
  • Both female and male patients with IBD seem to increase their BMD beyond the age for expected peak bone mass (see Video abstract, Supplemental Digital Content 1, (
  • What is peak bone mass? (
  • Peak bone mass is the amount of bone a person has in his or her early adult years. (
  • Maximizing peak bone mass as a teen reduces the risk for osteoporosis (thin, weak bones that break easily) later in life. (
  • This study, supported through NICHD's Pediatric Growth and Nutrition Branch , offered an unprecedented opportunity to identify predictors of peak bone mass, a major determinant of osteoporosis in later adulthood. (
  • In 2010, a genome-wide association study was initiated to further study the BMDCS cohort and identify the underlying genetic determinants of peak bone mass and bone mineral accrual in childhood. (
  • The best method of osteoporosis prevention is to maximize peak bone mass during development. (
  • Of the more than 300 teens in the study, those who were less active had significantly less bone strength than those who were active, increasing their risks for fractures throughout their lives and osteoporosis when they become older adults. (
  • Preventing the risk of fractures begins with developing bone health in childhood and adolescence, she said, and the good news is that it may not require much effort. (
  • Increased osteolysis is a common feature of inflammatory disorders and a risk factor for bone fractures. (
  • Fractures are classified by how the bone breaks, where the bone breaks, the completeness of the break, and whether or not the bone penetrates through the skin, resulting in bones healing themselves in four stages: hematoma formation, soft callus formation, hard callus formation, and bone remodeling. (
  • Intramembranous ossification also helps with healing bone fractures. (
  • Endochondral ossification is also part of the process that lengthens long bones, as well as the natural healing of small bone fractures. (
  • Calcium is critical to building bone mass to support physical activity and reduce the risk of fractures. (

  • Bone metabolism is one of the in vivo processes regulated by OPG. (
  • This proposal will standardise and validate the use of a human ex vivo assay for the study of cancer-bone disease, thereby replacing mice as the first stage model for the study of cancer cell interactions within the skeleton, and providing a new system to assess novel drugs aimed at reducing cancer metastasis to and proliferation within bone, in addition to blocking tumour-induced osteolysis. (
  • However, it is not possible to recreate all cellular aspects of the bone marrow microenvironment in an in vitro system, and the contributions of BMSCs to myeloma pathogenesis in an intact, immune competent, in vivo system are unknown. (
  • However, the contributions of this specialized microenvironment during early stages of myeloma development are poorly understood, largely because of the need for in vivo experiments that accurately replicate the complexity of tumor-host cell interactions. (

  • The mechanical and physical properties of the scaffolds (porosity, compressive strength, solubility) and their potential to facilitate homogenous colonization by osteogenic cells and extracellular bone matrix formation throughout the porous scaffold architecture prior to in vivo implantation were examined. (
  • Bone morphogenetic proteins were originally identified by an ability of demineralized bone extract to induce endochondral osteogenesis in vivo in an extraskeletal site. (
  • They compared the bone mineral density and bone mineral content of children at birth, and then at age 4 or 6, to the number of supermarkets, healthy specialty stores and fast food outlets in their neighborhood. (
  • The analysis showed that a higher number of fast food outlets in the neighborhood was tied to lower bone mineral density and bone mineral content in newborns. (
  • In contrast, the researchers note that having more healthy specialty stores in the neighborhood - such as greengrocers selling fresh fruit and vegetables - was tied to higher bone mineral density at age 4 and 6. (
  • Orthopedics professor Heather McKay of the University of British Columbia says about 36 per cent of the adult skeleton is developed during adolescence when growth spurts typically happen, and physical activity is critical for developing bone strength and density. (
  • X-ray scans revealed these children weren't simply carrying more unhealthy fat as they also had more lean muscle, and higher bone density than the children whose mothers took an olive oil placebo pill instead. (
  • Low birth weight is associated with reduced bone mass and density in adult life. (
  • In this multi-site study, the investigators will examine bone marrow composition (by MRI) in 40 transgender youth and bone density and body composition before/after pubertal blockade compared to healthy participants. (
  • The investigators propose to identify the effects of pubertal blockade on bone density and size in pediatric transgender individuals. (
  • The proposed project seeks to answer the clinically relevant question of how bone marrow composition relates to body composition, and its relation to both bone density and skeletal strength, in transgender patients who are undergoing puberty blockade, the first phase of therapy preceding gender-affirming hormone therapy. (
  • Children who have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have increased risk of low bone mineral density (BMD). (
  • The newly discovered pathway has a key role in controlling bone density during adolescence, which in turn determines the skeletal resistance to fracture throughout one's entire life, say the researchers. (
  • Prof. Yirmiya said that "low bone density and osteoporosis often appear together with neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression, Alzheimer's disease and epilepsy, since interleukin-1 in the brain and the parasympathetic system are often damaged in these disorders. (
  • Additionally, the results revealed the effects of the timing of pubertal onset on bone density, the need for height adjustment of bone density data in children, and the racial disparities in fracture rates in children. (
  • The primary goal of BMDCS was to obtain standard pediatric reference data for bone mineral density. (
  • The five CCs adhered to common procedures, which included DXA to measure bone mineral density, bone age, anthropometric assessment (stadiometer height, weight, sitting height), physical exam by an endocrinologist to assess sexual maturation, and nutrition and exercise assessments. (
  • Measurement of bone density was performed by a Hologic densitometer (QDR4500/Delphi/Discovery models) following standardized procedures and analyzed centrally. (
  • As with murine skeletal samples from tumour-bone disease models, bone from this assay will be assessed by microCT scanning and histomorphometric analysis to quantify bone volume and architecture, bone mineral density, tumour and bone cell distribution. (
  • Short-term milk supplementation had no effect on bone growth, mineral density, or strength. (

  • We examined whether pamidronate was able to prevent the development of bone metastases in breast cancer patients at high risk for bone metastasis. (
  • Thus, the rate of bone metastasis-free survival was significantly higher in the pamidronate group (85.9 vs. 64.0% at 5 years, p=0.023). (
  • In the pamidronate group, the incidence of bone metastases was significantly reduced and bone metastasis-free survival was significantly higher. (
  • Bone in particular is vulnerable to inflammatory assaults because its integrity depends on the activity of osteoclasts, which arise from myeloid precursors. (
  • OPG can also directly inhibit the function of mature osteoclasts in bone slice cultures ( 7 ). (
  • Osteoclasts attach themselves to the bone matrix and form a tight seal at the rim of the attachment site. (
  • Embryonic development in animals - except mice and rats - remains largely unexplored. (
  • The embryonic development of the cranium and cranial suture complex begins as far back as neural crest cell migration, a process starting on murine embryonic day 8 (E8) and completed within 2 days ( Slavkin, 1979 ). (
  • KCP is similar in structure to proteins like chordin, which suppress BMP signals during embryonic development," says Gregory R. Dressler, Ph.D., an associate professor of pathology in the U-M Medical School, who directed the research study. (
  • Developmental biologists like Dressler have been studying bone morphogenetic proteins for decades, because they are so important to the regulation of embryonic development in mammals. (
  • But KCP doesn't appear to affect embryonic development at all. (
  • While several factors that promote the differentiation of LECs in embryonic development have been identified, those that negatively regulate this process are largely unknown. (
  • They have an important role during embryonic development on the embryonic patterning and early skeletal formation. (
  • As a member of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily, BMP signaling regulates a variety of embryonic patterning during fetal and embryonic development. (
  • One possible solution for these problems is to develop bone implants acting on host cells to induce rapid bone regeneration. (
  • Thus, the present study proposes a proof-of-concept of a cell transplantation-free bone regeneration system by helping natural healing abilities of living bodies with a tetrapod-shaped, sterilizable, and osteogenic molecule-eluting artificial bone, contributing to the development of novel strategies for the treatment of bone defects. (
  • In this review we summarize recent data with a focus on the roles of Wnt signaling in mesenchymal stem cell fate, osteoprogenitor cell differentiation, chondrocyte maturation, bone remodeling, and bone regeneration. (

  • The main determinants of pubertal gain of bone mass are the sex steroids, growth hormone and insulin-like growth factors (by their effects on bone and muscle mass), 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (by stimulating calcium absorption and retention) and muscle mass (by regulating modelling/remodelling thresholds). (
  • Generalized osteopenia in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis--association with abnormal pubertal growth, bone turnover, and calcium intake? (

  • The current study investigated the effects of fetal growth restriction induced by MH during the last half of gestation on bone structure and volume in the offspring of the fetus near term and the pup in adolescence. (
  • Bone mass and bone size increase throughout childhood, reaching their peak at the end of adolescence, when growth plates are closed [ 2 , 3 ]. (
  • There are a range of endocrine and paracrine factors that regulate bone growth [ 1 ]. (
  • At P21, bone growth and vascularization are far advanced and all major structures have been established. (
  • Further research is needed before this work can be used to help trigger proper bone growth for patients, but the researchers are hopeful. (
  • Deficiencies in certain vitamins and minerals can affect bone growth and health . (
  • During growth, undernutrition, including insufficient caloric and protein intake, can severely impair bone development. (
  • Low protein intake lowers both the production and action of a growth factor called IGF-1, which enhances bone formation. (
  • In addition, this growth factor stimulates the intestinal absorption of the bone mineral elements, calcium and phosphate, via an increase in the renal production of calcitriol, the hormonal form of vitamin D. (
  • Therefore, during growth and pubertal maturation, an impaired production and action of IGF-1 due to a low protein intake may result in reduced bone development. (
  • During puberty bone mass increases more in boys than in girls, mainly due to a more prolonged period of accelerated growth in males, resulting in a larger increase in bone size and thickness of the cortical shell of the bones. (
  • The BMDCS provided reference curves for bone accrual, bone accretion velocity, and linear growth velocity that are analogous to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's linear growth and weight gain curves for children and adolescents. (
  • The careful implementation of the longitudinal protocol, with relatively few drop-outs in a large diverse cohort of healthy children, enabled the BMDCS investigators to collect valuable data on linear growth, the timing of puberty, bone age, nutrition, and exercise over a 6-year period. (
  • Bone mineral accretion in childhood occurs at a slow and consistent pace, with a sharp increase during the pubertal growth spurt. (
  • This latest development though, led by a biomedical engineer Ali Khademhosseini and his team of researchers, printed a template for cell growth that could be pulled out later so as not to destroy the cells. (

  • The bone marrow is well known to support tumor growth and osteolytic bone disease in multiple myeloma. (
  • Injectable bone substitutes, and especially CS, have also been targeted as potentially good carriers for antibiotics and growth factors. (
  • Embryonic growth and bone development depend on placental Ca2þ transport across the feto-maternal barrier to supply minerals to the fetus. (
  • Our results show that TRPV6 is necessary for the Ca2þ uptake in trophoblasts and that TRPV6 deficiency in the placenta leads to reduced embryo growth, minor bone calcification, and impaired bone development. (

  • Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are a group of growth factors also known as cytokines and as metabologens. (
  • In these products, BMPs are delivered to the site of the fracture by being incorporated into a bone implant, and released gradually to allow bone formation, as the growth stimulation by BMPs must be localized and sustained for some weeks. (
  • This gene encodes a member of the bone morphogenetic protein family which is part of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily. (
  • Together, these results clearly demonstrated the sensitivity of calcein staining for visualizing bone structures in developing zebrafish embryos and its effectiveness for screening for mutants that have bone structure defects. (
  • Although the clinical success of bone grafts and prosthetic implants has been shown in the treatment of bone defects, graft availability, function, and longevity still remain to be improved. (
  • The digit patterning abnormalities were associated with aberrant Shh pathway activity, whereas defects in limb outgrowth were due in part to disruption of Ihh signaling during endochondral bone formation. (

  • RANKL is primarily expressed by T cells and bone marrow cells ( 8 , 9 , 13 , 14 ), implying that it functions within the immune system in addition to bone metabolism. (
  • The whole distal end of the femur appears to have a marked increase in bone turnover, and there is also evidence of increased bone metabolism in the contralateral limb. (
  • Therefore, in the present study, we investigated the effects of selective introduction of CETP in BM-derived cells and thus macrophages on lipoprotein metabolism and atherosclerotic lesion development by using bone marrow transplantation. (
